Insights on AAM Autonomy from Automotive Part One – Inside AAM

By Quinn Foster

One of the most interesting aspects of advanced air mobility (AAM) is companies’ desire to make AAM vehicles autonomous, capable of flying without a human pilot. Of course, creating self-flying vehicles such as these involves many difficulties in technology, regulations, and cultural acceptance. However, there is one industry that has been pursuing autonomous vehicles with great success that the AAM sector can learn from: automotive.

In this episode, Todd Tuthill, Vice President of Aerospace and Defense for Siemens Digital Industries Software, is joined by Nand Kochhar, Vice President for Automotive and Transportation for Siemens Digital Industries Software. Together, they begin their discussion on the automotive industry’s experiences regarding vehicle autonomy and how they could be applied to aerospace companies hoping to do the same with AAM.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Why making AAM autonomous is important
  • The different levels of vehicle autonomy according to the automotive industry
  • The key drivers behind the push for autonomy
  • The importance of safety in designing autonomous AAM
